PATAL SHOOTING AT LLORKE
Negro Killed by "Top" Collier,
Who Is Himself Wounded.
Elloree, March 14-A homicide
occurred at A. S. Way's plantation
about five miles from here, last
night about 7 o'clock, as a result of.
which Browin, Oliver, colored, was
killed, and Manly Collier, white,
familiarly known as "Top'" Col
-lier, lies seriously wounded. There
were no eye witne~sses to the trageldy,
and the details are maggre. It ap
pears that young Collier drove from
is father's place, which is only a
.Drt distance from the road to his
me, to deliver a message to Mr.
av, and when he reached the
nt gate spoke to the cegro anid
asked him what he was doing out
there in the dark whereupon the ne
gro cursed Mr. Collier and com-1
menced firing upon him at close
range, the balls taking effect in the
arm, one passing through. the palm
of the hand and another striking him
in the mouth, knocking out two
teeth and splitting the tongue. Mr.
Collier, wtho was armed, fired upon
the negro three times, each shot tak
ing effect, the last one striking the
negro just below the heart. Oliver
ran off into the road a few yards
distant and fell dead. Mr. Colleir
was taken into the Way home, where
his wounds were dressed, thence to
his father's home. His physicians,
Drs. Browning and Green, say that
it is impossible to state at this time,
what will be the outcome of his
wounds as they have been unable to
locate the ball that struck him in
the mouth. He is resting easy to
night, and it is possible that he will
recover. The shooting is shrouded
in mystery, and it is not known for
what reason this negro fired upon
Mr. Collier with deadly intent,
A jury was empanelled and the
verdict, in substance, was in ac
cordance -with the above.

~ Dr. Earl S. Sloan,
deelared that a strike seemed immi
nent, the railroad managers assert
the danger point had been passed.
It was said to be likely that the
mana.gers' committee, headed by W
C. Nixon, general manager of the St.
Louis and San Francisco Railroad,
would invite W. S. Carter, president
of the Brotherhood of Locomotive
Firemen and Enginemen, and his
committee to another joint confer
ence. The Brotherhood has taken
the position that unless all the
questions in dispute are submitted
to arbitration under the Erdman
Act, a strike on all the systems be
tween Chicago and the Pacific coast
would be resorted to. The railroads
today reiterated. their assertion that
they would stand "pat" on refus
ing to submit to arbitration any
thing but the wage demand.
"We know a strike will not be
called, " said 0. L. Dickeson, assist
ant to the president of the Chicago,
Burlington and Quincy. "That stage
of the game is over. It is now only
a question of our getting together.
The men will readily see that a
strike would be preposterous."
"The railroads are trying to make
light of the situation," said Presi
dent Carter. "It is indeed critical.
We have been authorized by a vote
to call a strike unless they make
concessions and we have asked for
an arbitration of the whole matter.''
Mr. Carter said, the decision to
strike had been reached at a meat
ing of forty-three members of the
Western Faderated board of the
Brotherhood,. each member repre
senting a Western road.
The exact hour at which the men
are to walk out, he said, would be
decided upon tomorrow, and every
member of the Union between Chi
-:ago and the Pacific coast would
be then. informed by telegraph when
to quit work.
- Strike Postponed.
Chicago, Ill., March 15.-Danger
of an immediate strike of 27,000 lo
comotive firemeni on W*tern rail
roads, and the contingent throw.ing
Iout of employment of more then
1125,000 other employees, was avert
ed to-day through the acceptance of
mediation from the Federal author
ities at Washington. At the request
of the general managers of the
forty-seven Westerni railroads in
volved, Chairman Martin A. Knapp,
of the Inter-State commerce com
mission, and Commissioner of Labor
C. P. Neill telegraphed an offer of
Federal mediation to the union offi
ers. This offer was accepted. W.
S. Carter, president of -the Brother
hood of Locomotive Firemen amd
Enginemeni, stipulating that aiet'ion
must begin without delay.
The appeal to Washington was ta
ken as an eleven.th hour move to
prevent a walkout, 'which, it was de
elared, threatened the greatest rail
road strike since that of 1894. Thir
ty-seven members of the Western
1i'ederation board of the Brother
hood last midnight formally voted
for a strike.
The hour for striking had been
set/ for next Monday morning, and
the members were prepared to start
for their homes to put the strike
into action, when the mediationl
steps were ta.ken.
The mediators~ Will come to Chica
go, and, accordinig ti Mr. Carter,
will not arhitrate t.he questions in
.dispute, but will determine what
shall be arbitrated. The questions
involve wages, *'hieh both sides had
agreed to arbitrate, and two other
technical points,- involving prentos
tion and representation ini the tIP
ida:.. These latt* sub jects, the
Brotherhood contends, musit be ar
bitrated, but the railroads assert
they cannmot~ be arbitrated, because
they relate to internal union dis
"If the mediation falls through
the strike will go righvt on, as plan
ned,'' said Mr. Carter to-night.
In a statement given out to-night
the gen.eral managers said:
"All prospects of a strike are
over. There will be none. Settle

mediation and arbitration is as

Against aiy suc'h abuse, however,

Popular Mechanies for April.
IPopularity, in many instanoes,
has been a matter of a few days, a
few years, or, perhaps, severa]
-deoades. This- has been true of mnany
otable personages, of any numrber
of books and of not a. few periodi
als. The trend of civilization, ,es
pecially in America, is to demand
the mod'ern-the' ap4o=date, in ev
erything with which people eois
ern themselves. This e>rplains the
early death of so many hooks and
magazines; the policy has been
founded on some narrow prineiple
that does not admit of change in
conformity to the demand for
ehange,. For this reason, as much
as for any other, Popular Mechanics
promises to' have a long a.nd pros
perous life. The very nature of the
publication givss it an option on the
good thi-ngs of al1 the ages to come,
and that good things will continue to
come the habitual reader of the
magazines stands convinel.
In the last few months Popular
Mechanics has attained: the matu.re
stature of 150 reading pages. In the
April number appear 268 articles
and 268 illustrations, covering in
sprightly and attractive fashion the
full range of science and invention
as developed since the publication
of the previous number. A note
